OTTAWA – The federal government has entered into an agreement Thursday to compensate for the 140,000 members of the public service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) who have been victims of failed payroll system Phoenix.
The agreement covers the damages suffered by the officials from 2016 to 2020.
In addition to the agreement relating to Phoenix, Ottawa has entered into agreements related to approximately 60% of the officials associated with the PSAC. These are 84 000 employees and grant salary increases of 6,64 % over three years.
“I am pleased that the employees of the PA group, including a good number to ensure the delivery of critical services to Canadians during the pandemic, to have a new agreement-in-principle, and that all employees represented by PSAC will be compensated for the effects of the pay system and Phoenix has had on their lives. It is a testimony of our commitment to reach fair and equitable agreements that take into account the economic and financial context current”, said the president of the Treasury Board of Canada, Jean-Yves Duclos, by issuing a press release on Friday.
